What’s my purpose?

Nothing in the natural world has a purpose. We step into Nature and we exhale: “Ah, no purpose here.” Nor any need for one. Bears have no purpose. They do not take vacations. After all the excitement, the disciples were told, “Stay in the city.”

Make of nothing a means to an end. The end is the means. This is the essence of the Gita: Take no thought for outcomes. Expect the unexpected.

Mind games

Inner peace is not an achievement, the result of a process. It is the recognition NOW that fear is a falsehood, a hypnotic induction, a trick of the mind.

“Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists.”

All dressed up

Fear plays this little trick—it dresses itself up to look like what it isn’t. Parsimony. Protection. Prudence. Planning. Precaution.

Worry—that’s not fear, is it? Just looking at things from every possible angle, right?

If we could see worry for what it is, we would never worry again.
